The Deputy Regional Secretary of opposition NDC Mathew Kojo Njourkone has said the claim by ruling NPP’s “Chairman Wontumi” that he used money to influence NDC elections at the Regional, National and parliamentary elections across the country to get his preferred candidates elected is false.
According to him, the claims are illogical, mischievous and must not merit the attention of any well-meaning Ghanaian.
Mr. Njourkone noted that the timing of Wuntumi’s deceptive statement should send the signall that it is calculated to divert attention from the numerous scandals of the NPP government.
He said it’s sad that Comrades Yamoah Ponkor and Gloria Huze couldn’t appreciate this and have allowed themselves to be used to amplify the mischief of Wuntumi.
“I challenge Wuntumi to swear by his Bible and mention names of people he has given money to if indeed it’s true and he is an honest Christian or meet me at any deity of his choice or the famous diety in Ashanti Region called Antoah anytime to swear if indeed his claims are true, otherwise help shut up. I’m ready with my schnapp and an egg fully prepared for the test of invocation of the deity to prove his lies.” Njourkone said.
The vociferous Deputy Secretary lamented that it’s sad some members of the party are allowing a political novice like Wuntumi to succeed in creating mistrust amongst ranks of NDC party faithful and thereby knocking heads together.
“Wontumi has no stake in our NDC affairs. We are focused on working hard for victory and have no time for people who are unrefined and uncouth in their utterances ” he concluded.
